■ EXCHANGE

Fresh, local, pure, natural, organic (slow) food products are more expensive than their fast equivalents. One way to realize savings when purchasing slow food is to buy in larger quantities.

The idea behind the exchange is that those who buy in bulk can barter or sell food with others doing the same.

Bulk purchases from
– Seasonal Roots
– Whole Foods
– Amazon


A related idea is bartering of unused produce from CSA deliveries, or of backyard garden produce. Photos via social media or website can facilitate this process.
